Admix, Inc. was recently selected by the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) Association as the winner of the 2016 Annual Award for Communication Excellence (AACE) for its presentation video. The AACE Awards are sponsored each year by the Association to recognize the outstanding communications and educational programs of its members.

The awards are presented in May at the Association’s Annual Conference in Washington, DC to companies that excel in communicating the ESOP concept to their employees. Admix also won the award previously in 2013 in the Special Events category and was chosen again this year as the winner of the Presentation Videos (250 or fewer employees) AACE Award for its latest employee communication video designed to promote its ownership culture with current and future Admix employees.

“Admix is excited to be recognized as an AACE winner by the ESOP Association. As a proud ESOP company, we believe strongly in the power of employee ownership and constantly strive to educate our employees about its benefits,” said Lou Beaudette, President and CEO. “In turn, we share those best practices with other like-minded organizations and learn from them along the way. We respect and appreciate our fellow ESOPs and are honored to be part of such an engaged community.”

AACE Award winners are selected by a panel of five judges made up of both management and non-management employee owners, each of whom has demonstrated active experience and interest in the field of ESOPs and employee ownership communications. Awards are based on: overall quality and quantity of education, contributions of employee owners, integration of the ESOP into company culture, frequency of ownership communications, involvement and/or response of employee owners, encouragement of ownership attitudes, clear explanations, creative ideas, graphic design, and technical quality.
